The Akshaya Patra Foundation is an NGO in India feeding millions of underprivileged children. We are committed to eradicating the two most critical issues - hunger and malnutrition in India by implementing the PM Poshan Abhiyaan (formerly known as the Mid-Day Meal Programme) in Government schools and Government-aided schools.
Carrying out the world’s largest feeding programme, Akshaya Patra aims to not only fight hunger with nutritious meals but also bring children to school.
In Assam – one of the northeast states in India, we have two centralised kitchens which reach out to 41,064 children in 709 schools.
